I can cope with dated, old furniture and carpets but not dirt and body stains. My daughter will put up a review with photos then you can decide. She and her partner had a bed with most of the slats missing, no ceiling in the bathroom and a ladder outside their window. Faeces was smeared on the floor of the... More

Ha ha, Hotel. More like a Hostel or Stallag. In fact I did hear that Hostel 4 is being filmed there. Don't do it guys, sleeping bag on the Big Dipper is much better. Avoid room 4, I think they have dog fights in there as it has blood up walls and hair on the floor. Aaarrrgggghhhhh. Oh yeah, I... More

After reading many of the reviews we were a bit apprehensive,but needn't have been.We found the manager very friendly and upon arival as it wasn't busy he upgraded us to room with a sea view,Without us asking for it which was a bonus. So it's not the poshest of places but what do you expect for the price you pay!!!!!... More
